The Florida State Boxing Commission today handed out medical suspensions from WEC 36. New Featherweight Champion Mike Brown leads the pack and paid a price in winning the title-he's suspended indefinitely.

The 30/60 day stuff is probably standard procedure in Florida for guys who are TKO'd/KO'd. The big question is how long Brown will be out, probably safe to say we won't see him until at least March or April.

thats what I am wondering.. the I am waiting for Versus to replay the event so I can see it a couple more times to figure it out... he put on a great performance.. I hope he is able to defend the title and that he gets better.

One picture i saw in a news item about medical suspensions showed Brown appearing to take a knee strike from Faber in the clinch right in the midsection, that could've been it. I'll see if I can find that image.

Edit: See if this works...
